Thrashers have nested. Three little Thrashers in the
Laurel. And not so far away a Yellow Chat sings at
night. A general rule for night singing is to try not to
listen, and when that fails a person has to think in
terms of "He might find a mate soon." With night singing
birds it's not so hard, but the night singing Tree Frog
is a whole different game.
It was kind of
nice at first. A chance to say "that's a lonely Tree Frog!"
Then he found his way into the Vegetable Garden water
barrel, and he thought it just fantastic. His song resonated
around the barrel, and as the water level was reduced
following due diligence of the Gardener, that song resonated
louder and louder. Tree Frogs from Central Time heard it,
and there's a whole night singing Tree Frog Jamboree type
